In the framework of the EC-funded research project VITAL, MediaNet lab presented at EC premises during the second review meeting, the v2.0 of the VITAL NFV Manager: A lightweight NFV Orchestrator, capable of composing, deploying, instantiating and managing a Virtual Satellite Network (i.e. a Network Service which includes beyond the terrestrial VNFs, also virtualised Satellite Network Functions). The v2.0 of the NFV Manager has been upgraded with a graphical user interface, which provides resource monitoring per NFVI-PoP of the NFV infrastructure and per instantiated Network Service/Virtual Satellite Network.
The NFV Manager is compatible with the Openstack CCP and Opendaylight Platform, and More >
Medianet Lab will lead and coordinate FP7 Integrated Project T-NOVA that was submitted in ICT Call 11 (FP7-ICT-2013-11) at Objective ICT-2013.1.1.: Future Networks.
T-NOVA project plans to exploit the emerging concept of Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV), migrating network functions originally performed by hardware elements to virtualised infrastructures, deployed as software components. T-NOVA allows operators not only to deploy virtualized Network Functions (NFs) for their own needs, but also to offer them to their customers, as value-added services. T-NOVA leverages and enhances cloud management architectures for the elastic provision and (re-) allocation of IT resources assigned to the hosting of Network More >
